a trip down memory lane and look back over the last year or so when it comes to polls. romney has lost the lead in the polls five times to fellow republicans. remember those primaries? first it was michele bachmann after iowa. and by the way, a lot of these poll swings came after debates. a year ago it was herman cain and then newt gingrich out on top. and remember rick perry before his infamous "oops" comment, again, during a debate? and then there's romney's longest challenger, rick santorum, who sat at the top of the pole position for quite some time. and don't forget, there were 22 of these debates. so plenty of room for swing time. so romney's been here before. this is not his first time at the rodeo, that behind-to-ahead rodeo that we see in the polls quite often. cnn's political editor, paul steinhauser, is live for us in danville, kentucky, where the vice presidential debate is just one day away, getting under way tomorrow night. so latest polls, obviously this is a good time for the romney camp. it's nice to see a big bounce after the debate. but -- and that's a big but -- pol
